Book Review: Connected

Book Review: Connected by Kim Karr

What if a "Once in a Lifetime" could happen twice?

Suffering from a past full of tragedy, Dahlia London's soul has been left completely shattered. Happily ever after is a far cry from reality in her world. But, when she is reconnected with her past, the bonds that form are irrefutable.

When River Wilde, lead singer of The Wilde Ones, comes back into Dahlia’s life, the intensity that fires their relationship combined with underlying feelings that have never died lead her to believe she has met her soul mate.

Struggling with confusion as old connections fade and new ones begin, Dahlia's grief begins to lift—but guilt remains. River wants to be the one to mend all that is torn within her.

But with a past that is never really gone, can their future survive?

My thoughts: I started reading this book because it was so darn popular, the reviews were great and I saw it everywhere on a lot of the blogs I follow. It took me longer than normal to get through, because I got bored and put it down for awhile to read something else. I finally got back to it and it was good, but not great. The big thing with this one is the ending. There's a huge twist that leaves you wondering WTH? In a move similar to that movie with Bruce Willis from several years ago, you're mouth will drop open and you'll think to yourself, whoa I didn't see that coming. The book was well written and edited (and I have to say that because she used the same editor I use). The story was a little draggy at times and I felt like it was a matter of how many different ways and places can two people have sex. Sex is good, I'm just saying'. I did find myself skimming a great deal of the time just to get to this blockbuster ending everyone was talking about. It's an enjoyable read and a great premise. I liked it, but I didn't love it.
